The Palaszczuk Labor Government has voted down the LNP’s plan to guarantee face-to-face monitoring of dangerous sex offenders in the community.
LNP Shadow Police Minister and former Queensland child protection police detective Dan Purdie moved a disallowance motion in Parliament, after Labor watered down supervision of serious sexual predators.
“Labor’s priorities are all wrong if they think it’s acceptable to cut supervision hours of these vile grubs,” Mr Purdie said.
“Corrective services officers may ‘remotely’ supervise offenders in the community under Labor’s coronavirus measures introduced in June.
“Serious sexual predators should not be on the loose and effectively unmonitored in the community.
“Repeat sex offenders need more monitoring, not less.
“Who can forget in May this year when Annastacia Palaszczuk was caught out trying to let prisoners out on parole early during the first full sitting week as part of its Justice and Other Legislation (COVID-19 Emergency Response) Amendment Bill 2020.
“It was a ‘get out of jail free’ card under the guise of Covid-19 that Labor backflipped on once it was exposed in the media.
“The LNP has a plan to get tough on these monsters and protect Queensland families.
“A Deb Frecklington LNP Government would introduce mandatory GPS tracking for life for repeat serious sex offenders, establish a public child sex offenders’ register and introduce Carly’s Law which will give police the tools they need to stop predators before they have a chance to groom children online.
“Every parent has a right to know if there is a paedophile in their suburb.
“There is nothing more important than keeping our kids safe.
“Only an LNP Government will introduce tough measures because every Queenslanders deserves to feel safe in their own suburb, no matter where they live.”
